these political games for the armed services. we need to have a strong economy and national defense. but the last thing we need to be doing is having these devastating cuts to our military readiness and that's what has to happen is stop these devastating cuts, come up with the cuts that have the right priority and make sure the men and women protecting our safety and our freedoms here have the best armments, the best equipment and making sure we get those good paying jobs and technology and defense here in virginia and not use then am a pon to raise taxes. >> no one's talking about using the military or veterans as pons, i mean, i haven't heard that stated except george kind of throw in that charge at me and that's the kind of charge that you ought to be more careful about. i take second to no one in appreciating the service of our folks in active service and in our military i was governor in the middle o two wars. our virginia guards people, 1,500 of them deployed. i went to the deployments and the wakes in afghanistan and i celebrate the fact that all units are home. we have to get to a resolve

in defense cuts over the next 10 years. the department of defense estimated that president obama's defense cuts could result in as many as 1.5 million jobs lost. what can president obama to win the veteran vote? when you are talking about numbers like that in this economy. >> it is important to point out ryan budget cuts veterans benefits by 13%. it is important for the president to emphasize what he has done for the military and veterans, whether it is aid for military families or whether it is increasing benefits for veterans or his post 9/11 g.i. bill there's a strong record he has to try on and he should tuck about that. >> heather: trey what about those numbers? >> you will not be able to convince veteran vote there's republicans are not going to stand up for them. they will be there for him, they know regardless of the budget cutting republicans are proposing which is much needed in this town in terms of the waste, fraud, abuse or unnecessary spending that they are going to be there for our military that has never been a question. >> heather: defense secretary panetta says the cuts w
in the department of defense for managing the supply chain and then all of a sudden decide that you are going to apply that single solution to everything the department of defense by is. we wouldn't people to buy anything if that were the case. >> the only thing i would add is the trusten suppliers of objects but also as melissa referred to in her talk those that support those things the trust that might install or maintain them as well. >> i think we are talking about multiple definitions of a trusted supplier to the if you look at it from the business point of view, many of the supply years have to go through a set of requirements that means whatever those security brandt integrity of the overall company whether it's a background investigation the companies have to go through to supply to other companies to meeting all of the legal requirements, for example the corruption act for mean osha standards and i'm just citing the ones in the united states they have to meet the requirements of many different countries laws, and sometimes it is difficult to become a supplier to a high brand-name a a

. it is not a good feeling. the defense minister says that when it comes to military spending, the iron dome defense system, remember this is not the first time that egyptians ransacked an embassy. they ransacked the israeli embassy eight months ago. this is the second time in one year that in egypt embassy is fair game. the prime minister called obama immediately and obama got on of holland -- the phone and said, do something about this. protect these people. she will routinely say that this is the best president in american history in terms of support for israel. in terms of military spending, we have never got more support. but if you ask people on the street, they have a very different reading of the feelings of obama to israel. >> i had taken the position up until recently that israel should not be an issue in the race because the parties are both supportive of israel. it should relate to the domestic issues where there is clear cleavage between the two. that has been my position. i don't think that anyone can rightly say that president obama is the best president. i think reagan was. i think s
, and reintegrate the revolutionaries in the defense and interior ministries, as well as other state institutions. before the first time since independence, we have political parties in the political arena there is freedom of expression in the press. there is unconditional freedom to demonstrate, the freedom of association, freedom to set up several institutions, unions as well as political and social, intellectual organizations without any limitations. this has led to a free dialogue and participation by all peoples in all parts of the world. mr. president, the time of the previous regime for more than four decades saw fragrant -- flagrant violations of human rights, torture, detention without trial, expeditionary killing, humiliation of citizens, mistreatment. the when the revolution erupted on 17 february through peaceful demonstrations, the previous regime faced them down with bullets and oppression in a grave violation of international humanitarian law and human rights law. hence the human rights council suspended libya's membership in said council. and set up an international fact-finding c
administration officials and congressional democrats are coming to rice's defense, saying she went on the sunday talk shows and gave the "best information and best assessment that the administration had at the time." national security council spokesman tommy vitt just-released statement saying rice has done extraordinary work at the united nations and for the american people. the president appreciates the work she does every day and is looking forward to her continued work. congressman king is joining us now with his thoughts on all this. congressman king, thank you so much for joining us today. >> thank you. >> do you believe that ambassador rice is part of a deliberate cover-up to mislead the public on the events surrounding the attack in banghazi? >> ambassador rice was deliberate misleading the american people or showed a lack of knowledge and sophistication she shouldn't hold that position anymore. the administration has misinformed the american people, misinformed the world, and she was their spokeswoman, our representative to the world in terms of explaining what happened. virtually every
the israeli budget by $200 million this year. we helped to create and put up israel's defense system. when israel was faced with the palestinians going to the united nations and asking for a unilateral declaration, there was one country that stood with israel and stopped that. that was the united states of america with me talking to the president of the united states making sure that did not happen. >> thank you. the next question is directed at senator heller. >> to different degrees, nevada has a sense of just how devastating it can be to the state if we had a species list as an endangered species. economists say it could shut down our economic development. realistically, what can you do in the senate to prevent that from happening? >> for someone who grew up here hunting and fishing, i have a little bit of experience with this. , the sage grouse. it is not just a big issue for the state of nevada. we are talking an impact it would have agriculture, mining. it would be huge. i have put together a working group. i brought people together from both sides. we talk about the specific issue,
of the defense sequester that somehow is protected it's not pro tented as you were pointed out last night. >> there is -- i sort of felt like because the romney campaign has been so absent on issues of natural security, substantive issues of national security beyond just name calling i feel like the campaign should be encouraged now that they have tried to talk about veterans issues. there are huge issues with the disability claims but also other elements of the v.a.'s performance in terms of this current generation of veterans and older generations of vets and romney in trying to go there, in virginia this week, showed he didn't even understand the issue he was trying to make political hay out of. the problem of suicides among veterans and says a solution is he won't cut military spending in the sequester. you know, i don't think he knows what the relationship of the v.a. funding is to the sequester. i'm not sure he knows that paul ryan voted for that sequester or that at this point wars are the way you make new veterans if he's threatening new wars in iran and syria the way he's been so
of this country and support the smart investment to ensure a strong defense down the road. take this opportunity to turn off your cellphones. thank you. joining us today, four distinguished military leaders and representatives from the department of defense. very concerned childhood obesity poses a real threat to our long-term national security. let me introduce our speakers. general richard myers served as chairman of the joint chiefs of staff from 2001-2005. admiral james loy, u.s. coast guard retired. former deputy u.s. secretary of homeland security. the attendant general norman seip brigadier-general belinda pinckney and mr. charles milam, acting secretary of defense for military community family policy. our first speaker will be admiral james loy. we will take a few questions from the me after all the speakers conclude and we will segway to 1-on-1 interviews. thank you. >> good morning to you all. thank you, amy and thank you for use -- for your personal commitment to this cause. if you think this is difficult, try 300 general officers. thanks to the leadership of amy's team we made good p
.s. department of defense and most importantly for our purposes is that he travels frequently to libya. so without further ado, we are going to go in the order when should i have and just the people and we will start with fred and then move on. >> thank you very much. is really a symptom of a larger problem of the government's instability and marginalization in the eastern region of libya. it is known as sarah nay labarga in every. comprises the three territories you see on the map, the eastern half of the country. this is a periphery of libya but in the eyes of easterners especially people in benghazi, the key should not be the periphery. it should not be on the margins of governance. they see this region is really the engine of historical change in the country that was really overturned by qadhafi. political resources and economic resources. after all this was a region with the defeat of the dynasty and where omar muqtedar waged his battle against the -- and trying from eastern families and of course there was epicenter of the 2011 revolt and most recently now his been the epicenter of t
a country where there has been no military or defense or no civilian oversight. and the chief of staff is doing an excellent job at the moment in terms of asserting authority given the limitation of the army. but at the same time there's no effective civilian way for that the. very quickly the issue of military. that's the biggest problem. we have people who have no experience. and the affairs they are assigned to. with the min stir of defense it has beened because he is [inaudible] he became a defense minister. you have the military itself. is the middle of the bureaucrats who don't like to get anything done at any level. so anything comes from the top anything coming from the bottom up so you have and we had a long conversation on -- [inaudible] , you know, ambassador stephens he was complaining we were [inaudible] but the libyans are not taking and nay don't know how to incorporate the help they ask for and we are offering. and so the question was what can be done? you have to develop channels. i think task forces that deal with specific things that go around the bypass the bureaucr
is incompetent or she purposely misled. the reason simon and obama administration are so defensive on the your show today right now is because for months they have been gloating about how barack obama kept us safe and there have been no terrorist attacks on his watch. well, guess what, there was just a terrorist attack on his watch. we got hit at u.s. embassy, the first american ambassador killed since 1979 on his watch on the anniversary of september 11, 2001. this stuff about how george bush let 9/11 happen and barack obama kept us safe and no catastrophic attacks on his watch, the only reason we haven't had another 9/11 on the watch because a bomb on plane malfunctioned on detroit. that was not foiled terrorist attack. the bomb malfunctioned. they got through our defenses and the fact is that as steve hayes has been reporting today in the, in the "weekly standard", they lied about that one too. three days after that attack they said it was a lone, a lone man when we now know it was an attack by al qaeda in the arabian peninsula. said after times square bombing it was a lone man acting alone
through our defense secretary, other senior officials in the administration -- >> they said it's on the table. >> no one believes that because they've repeatedly spelled out how disastrous it would be, bad for america, wouldn't wipe out the iranian nuclear program, how much they are opposed to military action. they say it's on the table but no one believes it's on the table. we're not saying the military action should be used. but we are arguing that the threat of military action should be credible so it focuses the iranian leadership on reaching some diplomatic solution so if the threat of military action is credible you increase the likelihood of a diplomatic solution. you increase the likelihood that the iranians choose to freeze and stop their program, their nuclear program, race to a nuclear weapon rather than risk military action. by the president and his senior officials repeated projection broadcasting that military action is on the table but doesn't have a lot of teeth to it doesn't give the iranians incentive to get off the course they're on today. that's his point. y
with the defense cut. equivocating when you speak overseas about these issues, it projects weakness. the adversaries have more incentive toy tack us and allies are less willing to trust us. >> ryan and romney part company and will travel sepately tomorrow. but in ohio where he trails in the poll he has a new campaigner by his side. goldp bear, golfing legend and ohio native jack nicklaus will campaign with romney tomorrow. they argue that the public polls are inned a kate. they say it's a virtual tie in the wire in ohio and across the country six weeks from tonight. bret? >> bret: 42 days. carl call ron live in ohio. thank you. home rices were up 1.2% this july compared to last year. the second straight monthly gain. after two years without one. stocks were down today. dow lost 101. s&p 500 fell 15. nasdaq gave back 43. how a disputed call at a football game is bringing political enemies together. that's later in the grapevine. up next, bringing a are you puteed terrorist back to america for justice. copd makes it hard to breathe, but with advair, i'm breathing better. so now i can
for growth. really, what we're seeing in r.i.m.'s numbers are how well it's doing at playing defense. we know that part of their strategy is discounting their products, hoping they can create somewhat of a moat around them and give them time to get blackberry 10 out. seems that defensive strategy is working better than a lot of people expected. their average selling price is not down as much as people expected. a number of analysts expected them to do worse than that $2.5 billion number. they got up to 2.9. what we're seeing here is the the defensive strategy. it remains to be seen now that the iphone 5 is out and the samsung galaxy iii is out in the channel. >> all right, john. thank you so much. stock up big, 14% higher on r.i.m. up next, europe is a mess. the u.s. and china are slowing down. where is global growth coming from? bob hormats is with me. >>> then, it seems like a number of americans are learning a bad habit from washington. we'll tell you which one next. e, brochures, posters copies of my acceptance speech. great! it's always good to have a backup plan, in case i get hit by a
. >> thanks for being here. i am part of the children's defense clinic here at richmond. we recently read miller v. alabama. what do you feel about the treatment of juveniles in the justice system? to their need to be any changes? >> the way i view my job is actually to decide cases, and not the state lots of views about, here is what i think about penal reform, or here is what i think about children in the justice system. there are a range of legal questions that i might have views about, but in the end, it is really -- that is not the way i conceive my role. i conceive my role as a judge to decide particular cases, and the issues in those cases that come before me. in miller and jackson, speaking for five members of the court, i addressed one of those questions, which was a question about mandatory life without parole sentencing for juveniles. as my vote reflects, i thought mandatory life sentencing for juveniles is inappropriate, and the justice should have discretion to decide whether it is life without parole or some lesser penalty. in signing that case, i am not deciding, and will n
servants would face cuts to their salaries. the defense budget would be decreased. elderly would be hit further pension reductions. and social security payments would be reduced too. eu ministers will be watching closely. greek leaders agreed to cut more than 11 billion euros in exchange for the bailout package. they will save 60% of that with the new reductions. greek and eu ministers hatch yet to thrash out the details of the austerity measures. greek economic growth would shrink by 3.8% next year if the draft budget is adopted. r residents braced for a sixth straight year of recession. >>> japan's new economic, fiscal policy minister says he will be foep kul focused on efforts to tackle deflation. named to the post yesterday, as part of a cabinet shuffle. >> translator: i will closely monitor whether the bank of japan follows through with its policy objective of 1% inflation aimed at bringing the country out of deflation. if necessary, i will urge the bank's board to take appropriate action towards that goal. >> he is considering additional monetary easing among other options. he sai
's romney making a defense of his low personal tax rate two months ago. >> my view is i have paid all the taxes required by law. i don't pay more than are legally due. and, frankly, if i had paid more than are legally due i don't think i'd be qualified to become president. >> jon: i mean, heck, if i overpaid my taxes who knows what else i'd overdo. instead of pardoning one turkey, i may pardon all the turkeys. (laughter) so anyhow, paying more than the legally required amount of taxes would disqualify one from the presidency. that was two months ago. flash to this weekend. >> according to that 2011 return, romney donated $4 million to charity but only claimed a deduction of $2.25 million. he reduced his deduction and in essence paid more in taxes, the campaign said, to conform to his earlier estimate that he paid a 13% rate in 2011. >> jon: oh, charlie-- (laughter). oh, charlie. oh, charlie, you're fading on us, charlie! first we lost algernon and now you, charlie? (laughter) the election's around the corner and you can no longer complete a maze that just months earlier you designed y
on 60 minutes ? >> i think that romney did, president obama looking defensive. and when he looks defensive he is not obama 2008. >> i do not agree, i think that own ebobama swept it he was cled looked human, and took characteristic that americans like about him, his likability. lou: i thought this first two parts, the two men were responding to questions, that was a tie between the two. have you two smart knowledgeable guys, second part with issue of leadership, scott pelley, and crop, and i mean, romney was terrific, i have to tell i, obama of flat as he could be. that is the reason i give the night to romney. >> thank you, both. appreciate it. >> thank you, lou. lou: a slow weekend at the box was on the, i mean close. somebody is getting kind of tired of hollywood. and what they are putting out, overall box office receipts down 25% from the si -- same period r ago, something is going on, hollywood better figure it out, iit may have something to to wih their talk about politics, and police drama end of watch, taking top spot with $13.1 million, that is all, and horror film, hous
and said that the defensive free people reflects universal value. then he says true democracy demands citizens cannot be thrown in jail for what they believe. but we arrested the guy who made the video. then he said we're committed to helping you in the fight for democracy. if you don't secure american, which you shouldn't rely on them to do, we'll leave. >> bob: what is cognitive dissonance? >> andrea: competing theories through your brain. >> dana: we went ten days to call it different things. they blame it on the video and friday the spokesperson said it's self-evident it's terrorism. today, president obama didn't call it terrorism. why is that? >> bob: i think charles krauthammer is wrong here. they want the focus on the mideast and europe. a lot of other things around the world. keep it off of the u.s. u.s. economy. why does he call it terrorism is the million dollar question. the saudis or egyptians got to him. they decide they don't want to use that word. >> dana: comforting. >> because we talk about it and we'll blame him. he said terrorism september 19 and backed off of it. t
, the new generation of military our new, and you didn't do with it so much and now they minister of defense, chief of intelligence. they are new. and to create that relationship, and at the same time create a separation with civilians, military several roles in society which is modern society, it's tricky. we have to do it a lot in the countries that were coming from the soviet union. and that was a transition that we organized that will. and we have countries, mine for instance, came from a military dictatorship and we organized it. we had a spirit of how to handle that. and that is something that not many people have experienced, but i figure europeans and americans do have, and we should be more, trying to work in that direction. >> as the cold war was any there was a big meeting and all of the congress in vienna, i don't know if you recall this. we had all of the senior military leaders from every european country, even included the vatican was represented there, and i was the first speaker, my russian colleague was across the hall from me. and i said, i'm chairman of the joint chiefs o
was on cruise control, sort of playing a prevent defense against newt gingrich. but then once gingrich won south carolina, he turned it on. the next couple of debates, everybody talked about gingrich master debater and romney won. he does have some debating skills. >> he's good under pressure. and the good part is, he's under pressure. >> here's the historical problem with that, there's very little correlation between debate performance and changing the dynamic of a race. you have to search wide and far to find somewhere where the debate has changed the dynamic in the race in a person who's not leading 45 days out if a guy comes back and wins that race. he's up against history here for changing the dynamic. >> but there is a challenge. he has to be likable. only one out of five americans are going to watch this. those are the opinion makers across this country. what he has to be is likable. the pundits say, he didn't make this point or that point. you decide who wins a debate on television with a sound-off, not on. >> i disagree with you a little bit. you go back to 2004. john kerry went into th
, and that includes veterans. >> question over here. >> there has been a reputation for democrats on defense. it is 30 years in the making. we have now reached the point of what that survey showed. i am wondering about the romney administration attacking the president and showing that he is fumbling on events. i think they pick the ambassador of's murder in libya and the protests around the world against the u.s., all trying to show that the president is fumbling. do you think that is a successful argument? it is all happening right now shortly before the election. >> every poll that has been taken have shown a substantial advantage for this president when it comes to the question of regarding commander in chief. i do not think that has changed even in the most recent polls. i think the democrats understand that you can be secure and you can be smart about it. spending does not have to do with millions, but how you spend a smartly. this administration has assembled military and civilians to deal with mandated cuts and did so by tying it to strategy as opposed to reversing it. i do not see that the arg
the arab minister of defense and chief of intelligence are new. to create the relationship and the situation between civilians -- create the separation between civilians and military societies. that is tricky. that was a transition that we organized well. we had countries -- mine, for example, came from a military dictatorship. we organized -- [indiscernible] that is something that not many people have experienced. i think that we should be trying to work on that direction. >> as the cold war was ending, there is a big meeting in the halls of congress. all of the senior military leaders from every european country and even the vatican was represent. i was the first speaker. my russian colleague was across the hall from me. i said, i am chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, armed forces of the united states. i live in a system whereby constitution doesn't really trust me. they only give me money for a limited time and i have to go back and ask for more. they control the purse and the even made it in the constitution that we would provide for and maintain a navy because we w
as the defense and its face it popular at the beginning like the health care reform act and so long, the stimulus looked upon unfavorably by a lot of voters because even though many have felt the economy come back from cataclysmic tester it didn't exactly turn into a picture of health and voters tend to be unforgiving on things like that. what's going on? the first factor is the economy. it's not great now, but it's better than it used to be and i think we are beginning to get the sense that voters are getting credit for how much things have improved relative to a disastrous economic situation in the first year. voters can remember a few years back there some political scientist who maintained they can't remember what they had for breakfast and basically they just voted what's happening. i think we see in fact there is an influence of where it went before and how people see the current incumbent in that light so as we are seeing the economy pick up a bit with consumer confidence gain strength that this is helping obama take the edge of the economic strategy to say obama is the president come is a
